Smart kettles are fast becoming the latest kitchen convenience, not only will they save you time and effort but they can help to cut costs too
Smart kettles are fast becoming a must-have kitchen appliance essential for so many reasons, the main one being its energy-saving ability, and by energy-saving we’re not talking about the kind that will save you on your bills, we’ll get to that. We’re talking about the energy you will save from not having to leave the sofa every time you fancy a hot brew.
That’s right, some electric smart kettles can be voice controlled using Amazon Alexa and Google Home and can also be programmed to boil water whether you’re home or away via connecting a smartphone app.
They also come with a host of features that will not only save you time, if used in the right way will also help keep your energy bills to a minimum too. One of the ways you can do this is by controlling the temperature, which can be done using your smartphone; this will allow you to opt for the most cost-effective temperature, and by ensuring the right amount of water is in the kettle as it boils, this will also help to reduce energy consumption.

Bethan said: “Whenever I fancy a cup of tea, I can call out ‘Alexa, turn on the kettle’ and it will start the boil without even having to get up.

A second customer added: I’m not lazy but live in a town house so great first thing in the morning.”
A less satisfied third customer went on to say: “OMG! Really badly thought out product. Gets rocket fuel hot on the outside, no simple time-on function, its ugly….need I go on.”
